"Like humans, myths travel, from mouth to ear, following people from place to place, proving the existence of the path behind, anchoring the now in the everafter, reassuring in their predictions, unpredictable in their mutability. Their movements cannot be controlled, but they are sometimes caught: they land on parchment and paper, are carved into and out of stone, and since the development of computers, flit through copper and lithium and silicon. They are woven into tapestries and painted onto surfaces; they are projected onto stretched cloth."
Excerpt of 'Crossings' by Rebecca Lewin
Alix Marie (b.1989 in Bobigny) is a French multidisciplinary artist, working mostly across the mediums of photography, sculpture and installation. Her work explores our relationship to bodies and their representation, through processes of fragmentation, magnification and accumulation. She has demonstrated a particular interest in addressing gender stereotypes while working on the persistence and influence of myths. Metamorphosis; of bodies, of mediums, of and within stories is at the center of her practice. She graduated from Central Saint Martins College in 2011 with a first class degree in fine art and later completed an MA in photography at the Royal College of Art (2014). In 2019 she was awarded the Vic Odden Award by the Royal Photographic Society for a notable achievement in the art of photography by an artist aged 35 or under. In 2021 she presented her new body of work Styx at the National Center of Photography in Australia and is included in the “Fifty Pioneers Defining Photography for the Twenty-First Century” of Charlotte Jansen’s book Photography Now published by Tate and Octopus publishing.
